Concept / pre-visualization: Mr. A. Crabthwaite's Ingenious Land Transport



Getting a late start, but here's my first. I'm doing a version of the old fable "The Tortoise and The Hare."

Concept / pre-visualization: Hare, First concept pass



Here's my first cut at the Hare. I thought of doing it as a complicated-looking, clanking monstrosity. My fiancee pointed out that it didnt really look much like a hare when I was finished, and so I realized I'd sort of gotten lost in the mechanical details, so I did one I like better.

Concept / pre-visualization: Hare, Second concept pass



I redid the Hare drawing to look more like a hare, a bit leaner and curvier. I probably went overboard with detail, but it was fun and this is just to visualize the machine in my head. It will likely change a lot in the final rendering, but I will use some of the details here and there.

Nice details, very funny. Reminds me of burning man stuff. Very cool.

Thanks mark, many of my friends are Burners!

I'm going to go for a little Bobby Chiu meets Currier & Ives for the final image. I hope it comes out as goofy and fun as I see in my head.

Great concept and has a strong steampunk feel to it.

Work In Progress: Image Layout, Stage 1



Holidays are over, back to work!

WIP layout for the final painting. This is a rough blue pencil sketch, made a lot rougher by having to squash it to smaller than 150K. The original is on 9x12 Bristol board, and has a lot more subtle sketchy detail. You can probably see where I'm going with it, though.

I don't think I'll take this sketch much further on paper, because time is short and I need to get painting. This should serve as a good setup guide. I will probably move stuff around a bit, as I think the Hare is too close to the viewer. I'm not effectively showing the roadway or a crowd or anything, so it needs tweaking.

Here I'm cutting out the main components from the background in Photoshop. First the tortoise...

Work In Progress: Progress 3



Well, this thing won't let me submit all my images that I'm doing for progress, so here's one of two layouts I'm looking at.

Work In Progress: Progress 4



Here's the second, wider layout I'm thinking about. I think this might be a bit more expansive in terms of storytelling and atmosphere, but the downside is there's a LOT more painting involved. In this layout you can see a lot more of the crowd.

Since I only really have 9 days to whip this out, I'm thinking going with a big crowd scene might not be a good idea. The steampunk stuff has so much detail anyway...

Since I can't really submit everything I'm doing here, I'm putting it all up in my artblog: http://www.jeffzugale.com/artblog/ if you want to see every step.
